mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." this from the most ruthless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. and when the candidates suggest that their plans are going to be sufficient to address the crisis the deficit facing debt crisis that we're facing, in an environment which we can't afford to tank the economy, they are implying something that's fundamentally false, given what they've told us. president obama is telling us how he's goingcio get some extra revenue by tax incrsoses. but he's not going to get enough that way. and he hasn't specified the spending cuts. and governor romney's numbers don't work out either. in you've got both implying that my plan is sufficient, when in fact neither i

this... that's what this agency does. >> woodruff: meanwhile, vice inresident joe biden spent the day in iowa, where he attacked ryan's budget plan. >> look, ryan saying that his budget doesn't cut-- it just slows-- is a little like romney standing in an unemployment line and saying to the unemployed guy, look, i want to make it clear to you: i didn't outsource your job; i just offshored your job. >> woodruff: in fact, today the candidates, their running mates, spouses and surrogates blanketed seven toss-up states around the country. former president bill clinton has hit the trail hard, appearing today in wisconsin and ohio on behalf of the president. >> but i am far more enthusiastic four years ago. >> woodruff: clinton was in minesota earlier in the week, where the romney campaign recently announced a new ad buy. it's a place both sides had earlier assumed would belong to the democrats. the obama camp countered with a new ad featuring the endorsement of former secretary of state colin powell, ran it there and in nine other states. >> i think we ought to keep on the track that we're

? barack obama and joe biden, or mitt romney and paul ryan? or will it be a tie? 269 electrical votes, to 269 electoral votes. pat buchanan? >> the heart says romney/ryan, and head says too close to call, but i'm going to predict that romney/ryan will win all the 11 states of the old con fed racy, and barely win ohio and colorado, and he'll win with just over 270 electoral votes. >> obama biden will win with over 300 electoral votes, it will be a democratic senate, warren will win in massachusetts, and democrats will have 54 seats in the senate. >> i have to say i think this country really needs a change in leadership, given what's happened in the last four years, but i believe that owe -- obama will be reelected, it will be a close race, and ohio will make the difference, if romney carries ohio -- >> quickly -- >> close, i give obama the edge. i'm going to say 260. win withy and ryan will wi280 electoral votes. bye bye!

a campaign event today into a rereef event, their surrogates have be out there, ann romney, joe biden, michelle obam bill clinton. their campaigns have continued b to run advertising. we've seensolicitations for contributions not to the obama campaign but to the redso cross from that massive email list that barack obama has. the campaigns were up and running. they're still doing all the things they normally do. there's a little more sensitivity in the stes that are affected by the hharricane but they can't really afford tor pull out, to push the pause button. >> ifill: democrats have been saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which ma not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions a poible. so he's getting hit for that right now.ib what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organization? there's about $7 billion in the bank right now. if mitt romney and republicans were in control
